*The winner of this contest is #267, Amanda M, who said: “I would love a delicious (and also not grainy) recipe for Alfredo sauce… I’ve only found recipes that come out lumpy, grainy or just plain gross. Great giveaway!” Email me at mel @ melskitchencafe dot com and I’ll send your cookbook along, Amanda!*

To enter the giveaway for the awesome, brand, spanking new Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook, leave a comment on this post telling me what recipe you hope to find and love in the new cookbook. Have you been searching for the perfect snickerdoodle? Maybe it’s here! Tomato soup? Bet they’ve covered it.

Leave a comment with the recipe you hope to see in the cookbook and you’ll be entered to win a copy of the new cookbook.

It’s huge. It’s awesome.

The contest will close Wednesday, the 19th, and a winner will be announced sometime around then or maybe Thursday. How’s that for noncommital? It’s a busy week, what can I say. And actually, if you notice from the winner posted above – I completely changed tactic and announced a winner Tuesday night. Congrats, Amanda!

Good luck! And don’t worry, if you don’t win, you can go here to purchase the cookbook for yourself or for a special someone.

May the force be with you!

    I just bought my first butter nut squash and I’m intimidated by it so any recipes to help me tackle this fall delight would be great!! Also, as I am in love with fall foods, pumpkins recipes, specifically a pie would be a most excellent treat! Thanks for all you share Mel!

    I have been looking for years for a perfect sugar cookie recipe. They are my husband’s favorite! I’ve been told that the best ones have sour cream. Haven’t found it yet, but haven’t given up either.

    Valerie (reader who was wanting a veggie lasagna recipe), I found the BEST vegetarian lasagna from Cook’s Country (not even sure if you’ll see this post), but here’s the link. http://www.americastestkitchen.com/recipes/detail.php?docid=31252&incode=M**ASCA00
    By far the best I’ve made.
